to your bones.

(De 28:8)11 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline or be weary of his reproof, (Job 5:17; Heb 12:5)12 for the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.

(Jud 18:7; Jud 18:27; Pr 6:14; Pr 12:20; Pr 14:22)30 Do not contend with a man for no reason, when he has done you no harm.

(Job 29:4; Pr 2:15)33 The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous.
